Has anyone compiled a list of music used to accompany performer's acts? I'm not speaking of the Star Wars theme, but rather more obscure works used by conjurer's of the past.

For example, I spent some time about fifteen years ago trying to find the music that Okito used for his floating ball. I have since forgotten the piece and spent over two hours looking for the reference in my library to no avail...

I know that Ray Goulet in Watertown, MA has a large collection of sheet music, but it would be wonderful to know whether this has been compiled as a resource...

Off the top of my head there are recent references in Steinmeyer's Wakeling book as well as Karr's Benson book.

Are you looking for a specific performer/presentation?
